I can’t find enough words to describe our holiday, it was a wonderful package you put together with Lewa first and then the Mara. Both camps had excellent staff, which made for a most memorable, trouble free holiday!

Dear Rob, we simply had the most fantastic time. Thank you. The birding was excellent. Wildlife sightings far exceeded our expectations. We even saw 4000 wildebeest cross the Mara complete with crocodiles and lions picking them off! It left us breathless. At Mdonya we saw lion, cheetah and leopard before lunch one day! We have some fantastic photographs. Met other clients of yours at Kicheche who were just as happy with you as we are. We had the time of our lives and hope to return to some places…..thanks for all your organisation which was FAULTLESS.

Mary, Thank you for all of you help in putting the Botswana portion of our trip together. It was a great trip – our best ever. Chobe Game Lodge gave us a dedicated guide both days. Chitabe is a gorgeous lodge with a great staff. We had a great guide. Little Vumbura is amazing also with a great staff. Our guide “K” is world class. Thanks again.

We had the most memorable and wonderful holiday and all thanks to you. I was remembering that day last November when I first received your email, Rob, with an outline itinerary and for the first time felt a flutter of excitement when the whole trip had just appeared so daunting. Now it is all over but against the odds I made it to Uhuru Peak, Pole Pole! Asante sana.

Hi Michele. Just a quick note to say that we had a wonderful holiday, way ahead of our expectations, and constantly said to each other how grateful we were to you for taking so much trouble over it all. Many many thanks.

Hi Mary, just to let you know we had a great time in the Maasai Mara. You were correct – no need to worry – everything went to plan and the camp and guides were terrific. Roy is working through over 2000 photos. The wildlife was very plentiful and managed to pose almost to order. All in all an experience we wont forget. Thank you for all your help and advice.

Mary, I have just returned from my trip to Namibia. I had a wonderful time. I thoroughly enjoyed the Diverse Namibia trip with Wilderness Safaris. The guide, Regan, did a fantastic job and I want to send the Wilderness management in Namibia an email to let them know how good a job he did. The hike was amazing. I had wanted to do an activity which I thought would be challenging but rewarding and it was exactly what I had hoped for (and more). I do not normally go camping and I am only really a “post-prandial” walker so I confess that I was anxious about it at the start and, for the first 24 hours, I did wonder why I had agreed to do it! However, as each day went past, the more I enjoyed it and the day when we climbed the Gorassis mountain will live long in the memory. It was an arduous climb and the descent was treacherous but we arrived at camp that evening to find the porter, chef, hot showers and a bed roll! The gin and tonic which I had was almost certainly the best I have ever had! In short, I would highly recommend the hike. It was one of the highlights of the trip.

We had the most amazing time in Rwanda and Kenya. We were pleasantly surprised visiting Rwanda, as we just did not know what to expect – such a beautiful country and it is very interesting to see how they are rebuilding their towns and roads, but also how hard they work to improve their reputation. A country we would certainly recommend visiting, even more so to experience the best time of our lives by meeting and observing the gorillas. Absolutely stunning! Our time in Kicheche Camp was better then we ever had hoped for: the staff, the location, the view, the wildlife, the wonderful tent, the food, a very informative & fun guide – it all contributed towards the excellent safari experience. We felt we lived in some sort of ‘bubble’: an experience which is difficult to describe at home – that’s how good it was. Michele, your enthusiasm and knowledge made us choose Safari Consultants. We wish we could plan these trips a lot more often!! We appreciate all your help and quick responses at all times. Thank you! Hope to speak to you again.
